2nd Next National SUP Day Will Fight Cystic Fibrosis




USA - NEXT Swimwear – known for integrating swim, fitness, and fashion – is proud to announce the 2nd Annual NEXT National SUP Day taking place nationwide on June 15, 2013. The company has once·again teamed up with the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation (CFF) to celebrate the burgeoning sport of stand up paddle boarding·(SUP) and raise awareness of the health benefits the sport provides young people who suffer from Cystic Fibrosis (CF).·CF is an inherited chronic disease that affects the lungs and digestive system of nearly 30,000 children and adults in the·United States.

Scheduled SUP Day events are taking place in Chicago; Austin; San Diego; Newport Beach, CA; Palm Beach, FL; Clinton, CT; Brick, NJ; and Grand Haven, MI. At each event, professional and avid stand up paddlers will hold free clinics for children afflicted with CF. The Chicago, Newport Beach, Clinton, and Brick events are also free and open-to-the-public. Additional events around the US are expected to "pop-up" day of.


"Year two of National SUP Day has grown from five events to eight events, and we know that others are going to pop-up on that day," said Lisa Vogel, president of NEXT Swimwear. "The event really is more of a nationwide day of celebration, and we're excited to work side-by-side with CFF to raise awareness of their cause while we all enjoy SUP!"


“Through the generosity and support of companies like NEXT, the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation is able to share the exciting health benefits of SUP with the CF community,” said Michael Shumard, executive director of the Orange County Chapter of the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation.
